We attended an appointment at Bunbury outpatients, scheduled for 10.45, we arrived 30 mins prior for my child requiring a repeat x-ray and we were still back in the waiting room at outpatients at 10.30.
We waited 2 hrs 15 mins to be seen, and the specialist just re-wrapped the backslab that had been on my child’s arm for the past 2 weeks, as we couldn’t get an appointment in the 7-10 day recommended time frame.
Taking my child out of school for that amount of time, we weren’t advised that the waiting times would be that long. I do understand that these can’t be predicted, but maybe the reception can advise people that often they run behind time. I believe other outpatient departments run more efficiently than this one.
